I completely forgot to update my blog after our 9 week ultrasound on Monday.
On Monday I had a bit of rust coloured spotting when I woke up so I called my OB office and they had me come in that afternoon.
My ultrasound tech was really well… a bitch. So much so that I even asked her what was wrong as soon as we walked into the room because normally they actually try to make you feel comfortable this lady must of been having a bad day because it was tense from the get-go.
Anyways we started the abdominal ultrasound and she was extremely quiet and my anxiety went to 100 real quick… I asked her if she could see them both and she wouldn’t even respond to me (like I said, a real bitch) so I was panicking. Then she only had me hold my breathe once instead of twice for both babies… I thought for sure I had lost one.
She told me to go to the washroom and we would do a transvaginal. I asked her if that was safe since I was on pelvic rest due to my two hemorrhages and she just said “yes, that’s the policy here”… I wasn’t really sold on that answer but I did want her to do the transvaginal so I could get some answers.
When I returned to the room… I was bad and looked at the screen. I read one was measuring at 9 weeks 2 days and the other was measuring 8 weeks 3 days. I was heartbroken and just wanted to cry as I started getting the transvaginal.
Then she has me hold my breath… then she has me hold my breath again. I ask her “is there two heartbeats?!” And thankfully this is when she stopped being so cold and told me yes both babies are there and have heartbeats. I couldn’t believe it. I started bawling my eyes out (second time during an ultrasound now lol) and I later found out everyone could hear me as my mom came with me but waited in the waiting room and asked if it was me crying. YEP.
The ultrasound tech said that one was hiding behind the other during the abdominal so she couldn’t really see baby B but they were both measuring perfectly and had nice healthy heartbeats.
I spoke to the doctor afterwards and the other great news? One of my hemorrhages is gone and the other is shrinking! He even said he doesn’t think my miscarriage rate would be higher than anyone else even with the twins and hemorrhage which was a relief to hear.
I am definitely feeling more optimistic this week and I even left my bed a couple times to go with my husband for a “car date” which is how we have been having our dates since I can’t walk around much. We just order take out and eat it in the car haha.
I go for another ultrasound in a few days for my 10 week ultrasound and I am hoping the other hemorrhage will be gone too. We are also doing the ultrasound where they check the fluid on the back of the necks so I am hoping we have some good results from that as well.
My ultrasound pic of Baby B isn’t the greatest since she took them abdominally so you only see their back I think. But it’s a great shot of Baby A.
